NY Giants Co-Owner Steve Tisch — ‘Hard Knocks’ Is BAD for NFL Players

James Harrison might be on to something, “cause “Hard Knocks” is the kind of show that can DESTROY a football team … so says NY Giants co-owner Steve Tisch.

Tisch — and the entire Giants organization — have made it clear the team will NEVER agree to participate in the HBO docu-series, and yesterday in L.A., Tisch explained why.

“I don”t think it brings anything to the team,” Tisch said … “It”s a bit of a distraction and I think it”s sort of misleading for the players … especially the young guys.”

Tisch continued, “Even though It comes off as a documentary, you”re asking young athletes to perform. Perform on the field … don”t perform in the locker room for a TV show.”

“I don”t think it”s in the players” best interest.”

Clearly, the Cincinnati Bengals don”t feel the same way. They”re currently participating on the show for the SECOND time.
